Don't get me wrong I'm all for perfecting an economical walk out and set-up because when you're up at the heavy loads, it makes a big difference but at this time when you're dealing with low weights and working on your set-up, you can be a bit more fluid and move your feet a bit more.

WRT your dead's. What would you tell someone else who had chosen a routine but wanted to change the set and rep' scheme? Personally I have never been a fan of multiple sets at the same weight. I would rather ramp up to a max effort set and then back off for a bit more volume but that's not how this routine is set-up.



Nice weightloss Jim. Keep pushing hard.

Yes, I agree I need to look down after walk out to make sure my feet and stance are OK, so I will get that doen next time Al.

It's not that I am afraid of the weight, although 245 is not light weight, at least for me, on a front squat. My main concern is my grip, as I have to be careful the bar doesn't roll and to keep my elbows up and pointed in, due to my tremors. It's like lifting in an Earthquake Al Thus, I tend to divert all my enrgy and focus on that area, and hope everything is OK with lower body positioning and movement.

If this is a big enough problem, I may have to stop doing fronts. Maybe start doing Zercher's or perhaps just back squats. The tremors are always worse when I am weakened, as in this case after doing heavy deads.

It was more the way that you were moving your feet as you do the same thing on your back squats. You take one step, stop, then another. If that's because of your tremors fair enough but you need to look down at your feet after your two big steps and maybe take a couple of little adjusting steps. I don't think you need to stop doing fronts at all.

I don't understand Al On the 245 set, I only took one step back per foot. My heels rose a bit, but I think I was just adjusting the weight distribution.

So you're treading in two big steps and your feet aren't angled correctly at the end of it. This could be because you don't know what angle you need them at but it could also be because after you take your two steps, you don't look down to check your feet and make any necessary adjustments.

After yesterdays benching session, I wasn't sure what to expect. If deads felt too heavy, I was going to immediately go into a deload for cycle 4. As it turned out, I do not need a deload yet. If deads and squats go well, I know I am good to go and vice versa.

The deads felt great, and I left the session feeling I could have lifted even more, which really made me feel good. Deading every 12 days has turned into a big win for me.

Awesome session. Can you slow down on the PBs so I can try to catch up? J/k. Congrats on your new PBs. The deadlifts looked really good. You are smashing some weight there. To be honest though, I thought the front squats were equally if not more impressive. Front squats aren't easy and you are moving some good weight!!!!

I've read articles and books where people advocate deadlifting at longer intervals, like every 2 weeksish. Interesting to hear that it seems to be working well for yourself. This is something, based on your results, that I may consider using in the future.
Great Session!!!

I can't look down on fronts, but on backs I always check my feet. Even the slightest off angle for one can cause me to have issues.

That's my 2 cents and I'm sticking to it.

Ok Big Al - I will take a peek next time and make sure stance is wide enough, my toes aren't pointed out quite as much. My knees should track properly naturally. I reckon I will vid from the front again.

Thanks Big J!! I reckon the PB's will slow down a bit on there own, especially now that the oly lifts are getting heavier and heavier.

The fronts are hard on my wrists, as they are slow to adjust, but they will eventually. When I first started fronts last year, 95 lbs made my wrists scream. It is also a challenge olding the bar in place because of the tremors.

I have also read articles about deading once every 2 weekish. Big Al has also commented before lifting heavy deads every 2 weeks or so is a good idea. I have to agree, and I also like squatting more often on this routine (every 4 days) That should help improve overall strength.

I can see my toes because they are so long!! I have been checking my back squats every session.

I like your money
